I have a head, but do not think,
I contain a metal, but it's not zinc,
It is wood, that I mostly am,
I will be handy, when on a camp,
You may find me, in people's homes,
As a house, or as a boat,
I'll be in a bottle, or a box,
For on my own I'll be lost

What am I?



Answer

A match (or matchstick)

There is a head to a match,
There is the alkaline metal phosphorus in the head of a match to aid ignition,
People often make matchstick houses or a boat in a bottle,

So there you go, I'm a match!
